2010 Best Horror Film Winner

Splice

6-4-2010Splice

This was a difficult choice for me because Splice is only kind of/sort of a horror movie.  I feel like it does come from a type of B-movie horror lineage and it is at its heart a monster movie.  However, it’s more about ideas than thrills and it doesn’t really behave like a horror movie until the last fifteen minutes (and that isn’t really the best part of the movie).  However, it is decidedly my favorite of the five nominees here and the other contender (Buried) had classification issues of its own.
